The CU School of Medicine once again earned high national rankings in the U.S. News & World Report annual survey of medical schools. The 2010 findings named the School of Medicine fifth in primary care and 27th in research, and beyond those broad categories, the school was ranked ninth in pediatrics, ninth in family medicine and 22nd in internal medicine. The school’s physician assistant program placed eighth.
In separate rankings of hospitals, released last year, the two Anschutz Medical Campus hospitals, University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s, also were highly rated. And in recent U.S. News ratings of pediatric hospitals, Children’s was strong in most categories: 11th in cancer, fourth in diabetes and endocrine disorders, fifth in gastroenterology, 19th in heart and heart surgeries, and 28th in kidney disease.
